When we founded our space in North London, we wanted to bring coworking to our area. We believed that we could create a community that was an alternative to the inaccessible and corporate coworking spaces already available in London. We wanted our space in Manor House to be a place that go-getters, small businesses and self-starters would come to meet and work comfortably. We wanted to create an environment where people shared their ideas, and we wanted to grow with our community to create a space to suit them.
After months of bootstrapping, experimenting and learning, we’ve received investment that will allow us to do brilliant things – it’s an amazing feeling when other people believe in you and your business as much as you do.
We started as three guys and one empty space, since then we’ve worked with local initiatives, startups, and businesses to make the space the best it can be. We’ve started to grow our team, from hiring people in the area to help run and build Areaworks, to using the local businesses and friends around us to collaborate and grow our offering.
We’re passionate about bringing open, collaborative and accessible coworking to everyone, and our vision may be bold, but we believe we can do it. We see ourselves as a coworking community with openness at its core, and with this openness brings opportunity.
Our vision is to bring open-minded coworking communities to every area, and in doing so to kickstart a hub of collaboration, growth and productivity for our members. We want to make spaces that give people the space to build their dreams.
And this is how we’re doing that:
Looking at vacant spaces across London that we think would benefit from our kind of coworking, we want to turn redundant spaces into productive, positive communities for people to work and grow.
Reaching out to more entrepreneurs, SME’s, business communities and local charities to work with us across London.
Running workshops, meetups and fun stuff that help our community not only skill up, but also feel good as they do it.
We’re working to grow a network of sister spaces across the world, so we can benefit our members wherever in the world they end up.
Offering up space for bright minds, thinkers and doers in the area to run events, talks and more.
We’re working to secure more investment with suitable stakeholders to receive maximum impact, so we can continue to improve and grow in everything we do.
Areaworks is a provider of open supportive coworking office spaces in accessible areas throughout London.

We believe there’s a better way of working, and we’re here to make it happen: in our areas, with our areas. We believe in opening up communities that inspire progress and open up opportunities. We offer complete turnkey work place solutions for start-ups, creatives, freelancers, and entrepreneurs.
